I am a Writer.

As I sit at my desk, tapping away at the keys, the visions flowing through my head to my fingertips which translate my thoughts into words creating stories, I am constantly amazed.

I am a writer.
I get to make stuff up to share with other people.
And I like it, I really like it.

A lot of people want to write a book.
A lot of people have great ideas for a book.
A lot of people like to tell you about the book they will someday write.
But few actually make the commitment to do it.

If you want to write a book, get writing.

STOP talking about writing a book.
STOP thinking about writing a book.
STOP building a platform
and worrying about editing
and researching ancillary details
and concerning yourself with query letters
and spending the advance money for the contract you will surely get after the top houses battle for your award winning manuscript.

START WRITING.

You’ll be glad you did.

I know I am.

Be a writer. Write.

My books: A Stranger’s Child, Pocket Money, Kinder Garden, Baker’s Dozen.

If not a writer, then a reader be.

About Mary Fran Says

I am an artist, crafter, designer and writer. I enjoy working with mixed media-- applying visual and tactile manipulations to telling a story. Not a lot of market for that, though, :), so I'm focusing on short story submissions and novel completions. Yes, plural. Lots of beginnings, too many ideas, not enough focus.
